Escape's take on upReach

UpReach are a social mobility charity working with young people from low socio-economic backgrounds to achieve their career potential. They also work to influence the hiring behaviours of top organisations so that a commitment to equal opportunity is part of their organisational culture and they recognise the value of greater diversity within their workforce. They've gained a well-deserved place in the 2021 Escape 100 list not only because their mission is so valuable, but their employee reviews were outstanding. The friendly team are highly motivated by their cause.
